, the medicare c is the money, the federal government says the money. but there is the different costs associated with the subsidies would extend coverage and the medicaid expansion. so it's not exactly a win-win situation according to the analysis that the kaiser family foundation has conducted. >> i do endorse her briefing that we did in december. a lot of different materials and a webcast that you can watch. we have several related questions and maybe john can take the first crack at it. it has to do with medicare advantage plans. they ask generally how does star rating system works. that is related to a question that was not asked here, but was passed by the senate office, which ask how come a lot of money went to three-star plans this time around. we could relate that to this question. they are related. explain how it is scheduled to take effect. i understand that only about 4% may have taken effect now. do you anticipate that some of the problems that you have referred to and perhaps lesser benefits could show up in this again. >> i will try my best to answer every question. before the affo
government and have very different views about what should be done. because of this, parses want to organize and coordinate but campaign finance laws but restraint of that. laws were designed during canada-centered elections and parties to an answer that much. we did it matter that much. we knew where the money was coming from. now we have super pacs and there is a severe mismatch between a high stakes system an old- fashioned laws that force money outside the regulated system and things will only get worse as every member of congress wants their own super pac and we're going to have an arms race. i don't see it becoming evidence that citizens united will have an impact on this. let me start with redistribution. total spending did not explode like many said. at least it doesn't seem that way from initial estimates. total spending was about the same or slightly less compared to 2008 based on estimates by the center for responsive politics. re close to the previous election and it includes all spending. same is true for congressional elections. total spending seems to have declined by 300 mill
. basically, congressman, you are right. if the government is paying people to build battle shilps or structures, those will have comparable affects, dollar for dollar. but economy and on the output of jobs. >> you can watch all of this hearing on c-span 2 or any time at the c-span video library at c-span.org. for more white house if of staff jack lew is the nominee to be treasury secretary. at his senate confirmation hearing, he was asked questions about his tenure at citigroup and his cayman islands investment. this finance committee is three hours and 20 minutes. >> this meeting will come to order. before we begin, i want to recognize new members to the senate finance committee. secretary brown, senator bennett, senator robert portman , senator bob casey. welcome. we are honored to have you. you'll find the tradition of this committee is one that is very proud to work together. i'm happy that you are here with us to help move that tradition forward at a greater and deeper rate. we deeply appreciate it. less than two miles from where we sit today at the entrance of u.s. treasury
's expanding. as the mba working with the government to allow for release of additional american films and especially non-censored american films? >> sure. for many years laments are not just us, it is global. only 20 foreign films including around could be screened in the chinese market them as a result of a chip eto, world trade organization case negotiation of a trade office did a terrific job, were able to increase to 20 to 34. obviously china decides that it's going to allow the viewing public to see and said they do control that and that's great surprise. they have their own standards of what they assert that to allow to be show in their theaters. i mention in my remarks that what has happened is despite the size of the country, very few theaters in china. recently the chinese decided this is something they want to provide for their consumers and build in opening up 10 new screened today in the country to the point where they have 11,000 a few sicko was a handful. so we're working on it all the time, going back and forth then again there some issues that come up, but we think it
government checks, handouts and programs. that would be the way to save this country, in my opinion. that's the way to help poor people and i resent the fact that those of us who have a different view of how to help poor people somehow don't care about them. compassion and help for the poor and struggling amounts to more than just borrowing money and sending out more money in the form of checks. my goal is to help working americans from the social and economic harm that is caused by policies i think of this president and the senate majority. these programs have not worked in places like baltimore. one in three residents in baltimore are living in poverty. there are solutions to these problems and we can do better, we have to do better, we cannot continue on this course. so compassion demands change. our goal must be to help more americans find gainful employment and let them support themselves, their family and to prosper. before closing my remarks, i would like to address a serious challenge we will be facing. we have to consider the immigration questions, and studies show the $2.5 trill
-led government and minority sunnis. u.n. investigators said today the time has come for suspected war criminals in syria to face the international criminal court. carla del ponte, a member of a u.n. commission of inquiry, said even if there is ultimately a peace settlement, it must not give a free pass to those accused of atrocities. >> i'm concerned about what he's done in the political side to achieve peace and to negotiate peace. what i'm sure that once international justice is dealing with this case, it is no amnesty at all. >> sreenivasan: the commission found the civil war is increasingly sectarian and radicalized on both sides. it also cited the spread of weapons as a growing concern, and urged the international community to curb the flow of arms into syria. another member of the u.s. senate has decided to step aside. republican mike johanns of nebraska announced today he will not seek a second term next year. in a statement, he said he wants to spend more time with his family, after spending 32 of his 62 years in various offices. johanns is the fifth senator to announce plans to retire
and don't expect governments to be forth coming about that. >> let me ask you briefly as the u.n. goes back into session to look at sanctions, what more can be done at this point? >> very little on an international scale. in 2009 they came out with some very good sanctions, but it didn't really influence the north koreans' actions. i don't think there's any marginal addition to the sanctions that are in place. they're going to call on the north koreans to blink, if you will. very little from an international point of view. necessary but won't produce an outcome. >> brown: ambassador jack pritchard and james acton, thank you both very much. >> thank you. >> woodruff: we have more about today's nuclear test on our web site, including a dispatch on reaction in seoul, south korea, from our partner global post, plus links to previous newshour stories on north korea. and still to come on the newshour, white house spokesman jay carney; palm oil production in malaysia; osama bin laden's killer; plus, shields and brooks. but first, the other news of the day. here's hari sreenivasan. >> sreeniva
laid out tonight. the choice isn't just between big government or big business. >> oh, so unsmooth and awkward. rubio did speak out this morning on "good morning america" and said "i needed water" what was i going to do? >> we're back after the break. going to do the young turks. i think the number one thing that viewers like about the young turks is that we're honest. they know that i'm not bs'ing them with some hidden agenda, actually supporting one party or the other. when the democrats are wrong, they know that i'm going to be the first one to call them out. they can question whether i'm right, but i think that the audience gets that this guy, to the best of his ability, is trying to look out for us. stop looking at car interiors. get inspired by other stuff. yep. yep. ok. sure. why not? woah. touchscreens. put that in your dash. now, luxury stuff. make your seats like that. that thing has wifi, why doesn't your car? you can't do that. ignore that guy. give it wifi. yes! make it fit 5 people. no, 5 actual sized people. give them leg room, good.
refrain-- reframe the republican philosophy it was very much small government versus big government. that's what we heard for a long time. i think republicans are going to have to have more than boot staps message. they're going to have to define a limited but active role as government to help people gain the skills they need to compete in the modern economy. he needs to, in order to reformat the republican message, have that 250i7 of message but he's got time. you for example the good thing is he has time. >> what do we read from the fact, michael and mark, as we said not one but two republican responses. the over one was rand paul, tea party. obviously this is just the tip of the iceberg but what does it is a about the republican matter right now. >> i think the republican party going through a very difficult period. just to give you sort of a quick history lesson, joe leiberman was democratic senator, nominee for vice president in 2000. in 2007 he created a great-- committed a grea great-- oppose tate act. he endorsed john mccain as president. he went to the republican convention we ar
willingly whether it's in government, whether it's in your office? i mean it just doesn't happen. so i think that the irony here, one of them, is that this man who many people associate with the middle ages is going to go down in history as a modernizer because he really showed this modern reality and was the first, you know, even 600 years ago when it happened, it happened to heal a schism. this is happening because he, a, sees we're living longer now, but, b, sees for all the incense and candlelight around the papacy, it's also a job, and there are certain requirements of the job, and if you can't do it, what he's saying and voting with his feet, is that you need to leave. >> well said. >> amen. >> i think it shows a lot of humility. in april of 2005 when pope john paul ii died, we broadcasted "hardball" from rome. as we closed our last show from there, let's listen. look at these people standing for hours, day and night, through the avenues of rome, packed together as if they had been caught and crushed in an industrial strength trash compacter. there they stood seeking no edge, plotting
. you see strife in a number of places. you see governments that are former autocratic governments that are failed or failing, creating further instability. the instability is at issue there. again, they are concerned about the iranian in the region. the region, which adds to the complexity ty ae. and of course, there's this specific issue at syria and continuing work we've got to do in afghanistan as well. same number of of things added together. also, there is a persistent bad from elements like al qaeda and al qaeda in the arabian peninsula that has the ability to generate a threat to the homeland. so that is very, very important. >> are we going to be able to meet those with the troops that are projected to be there? are we going to accomplish anation? we've had so many families in this country sacrifice. is it going to be worth it to that? i know you do this every day. how do you look at family is and say to time, we are going to pull out, maybe at levels they think might be dangerously low as i am geing information on this. how are you able to do that? when do we reach a holl
to get it done. they're all afraid of the government having a big list of gun owners. you know who has a big list of gun owners? the n.r.a. for a nickel a name, they'll sell it to you. stephanie: indicate obe chain. >> marco rubio scares the left more than just about anybody out there. instead of talking about that really intense moment when rubio was able to identify with the american people and say look, i don't live next to mill ayres i live in the same neighborhood i grew up in, i just paid off over $100,000 in student loans a few months ago that is the raft thing the leftists and mainstream media want the american people to be talking about, so they pick out something stupid like a drink of water. >> speaking of stupid, look in the mirror. stephanie: isn't his house worth $700,000, he wants to sell it to get out of that neighborhood. >> it's not the left that is afraid of more brown people coming to this country. stephanie: right. >> ok? if anything, it's the left that wants more brown people to be accepted and integrated into our society regardless of affiliation. we're actually
. >>> "the washington post" reports this morning government intelligence identifies china as a main culprit in online spying directed at companies with ties to military technology, but energy, finance, and other industries have also been hacked over the past five years. senior correspondent john miller is a former fbi assistant director. john, good morning. how widespread? >> this is pretty widespread, charlie. when you take an nie, national intelligence estimate, this is really the consensus of all 16 intelligence agencies on a problem, so this is going to be a fairly authoritative document that's sounding the alarm that china -- well, picture this. two giant aircraft hangars full of military people who work 24/7 hacking into u.s. government databases, private corporation databases. >> you mean those are chinese hackers doing that. >> yes, yes. and they're working for the government. these aren't guys doing it for entertaining. here's the difference. we do that too. all countries do that. the difference -- i think the alarm the report sounds is china does it not just for political and mili
governments, even when the current level of the federal funds rate cannot be lowered. the fomc's substantially expanded its forward guidance in recent years. in 2009, the committee stated that the economic conditions are likely to warrant conceptually low levels of the federal funds rate for an extended period. and 2011, the fomc said this period would likely last at least through mid-2013, and then extended the state guidance several times. a disadvantage of this calendar-based approach was that it might not be clear whether changes in the date reflect changes in the fomc is outlook for growth, for inflation, or a shift in the desired stance of policy. so last december the fomc replaced the date with greater detail on its economic conditions that would warrant maintaining the federal funds rate at its present exceptionally low levels. specifically, it stated that near zero rates would like to remain appropriate for a considerable time after the asset purchase program ends, and at least as long as the unemployment rate remains above 6.5%. inflation between one and two years ahead as projected,
a simple vote. >> the republican response, senator rubio of florida said more government will not help. >> more government does not help you get ahead. it will hold you back. more government isn't going to create more opportunity. it will limit them. more government isn't going toibl expire new ideas, new businesses, and new private sector jobs. >> speaker boehner says immigration reform is the only item on the president's agenda that actually has a chance of passing this year. >> six of the nine supreme court justices attended the "state of the union" address. those that did not included scalia and he is explaining why. he says he hasn't attended a "state of the union" address in 16 years but it is a childish spectacle and says he does not wand to lend dignity to a political event filled with applause lines. the supreme court justice calls the "state of the union" address a "rather silly affair." stay with abc citizen for continuing coverage of the president's "state of the union" address and george stephanopolis will have reaction on "good morning america" at 6:00. >> he speaks his m
isolate a tea party that says it wants small government on the one hand, but really object because -- >> cutting back -- >> cutting back for children who through no fault of their own were born here. rick perry of all people tried to make that comment. what happened? they shot hem down. idealogically and politically it may not be a bad move for obama. smoke them out. make them state just how committed they are to this. yeah. >> really quickly, ari. the other thing is that this whole process, we know the president said this is going to inflame passions, but can the gop debt get through this whout putting their collective foot in their mouth, which is to say it stokes the ayre of passions both in the progressive community and the conservative community and will any -- if they do make it an actual reform, does the rhetoric and resistance that will inevitably come from certain parties of the gop negate the fact that they make on actual policy? >> rubio has the same problem that lindsey graham has, which is can you do enough fire-breathing obama attacks to earn yourself any space to do
which will depend on many things but in part on negotiations with the government of afghanistan over a legal protection for the troops. the president has made clear that the missions of any residual u.s. military presence in afghanistan after 2014 will be limited to counterterrorism operations and tracing to the training and advising forces. general austin would bring exceptional experience overseeing this transition having commanded u.s. forces in iraq during the reduction of u.s. forces and equipment from iraq. just this past weekend, the forces in afghanistan have had a change of command with, excuse me, joseph replacing general john allen as the commander of the international security assistant forces and commander u.s. forces afghanistan. i want to take this opportunity to see three general ellen for your thoughtful and devoted leadership and afghanistan for his forthrightness and interactions and the rest of the members of the committee. when senator reid and i visited afghanistan and january we saw the signs of progress including the afghan security forces increasingly taking
bands in the world, fun. >>> a government prepares for the apocalypse. >> canada will never become a safe haven for zombies ever. >>> and the dance that's everywhere, even here at cnn, the harlem shake. >>> just when you think we've got it all worked out, cutting-edge technology, scientific breakthroughs, miracle medicine, lately there's been talk about colonizing mars and many of you carry around a supercomputer right in your pocket. but just when you think you have it all worked out, the univers reminds us, we really don't. case in point, friday a chunk of space rock gets sucked in by the earth's gravitational pull. then streaks across the sky above russia. as it rockets through the atmosphere, friction heats the front of the rock a lot more than the back of it. the huge temperature difference is too much and essentially turns a meteor into a bomb. it explodes into a bunch of pieces. and what you're hearing here, that boom, boom, boom, is this -- take a look. those pieces are moving so fast they set up a series of sonic booms and it's just a scary sound. the sheer force is destru
that too much government is bad. the government intervention is the problem. >> guest: hmm. interesting. >> host: but it's reasonable to interpret your book that way. right? one could say, conservatives, maybe even libertarian, wait a minute, this is what happens when government keeps tinkering and engineering, they trytake make us equal and as a result we end up hurting the very people we are were trying to help. this is what happens when government gets in the way. >> guest: yeah. it's not necessarily what i was trying get across. [laughter] >> host: but it's not -- >> guest: i think that the issue with that is who is running government? and who is -- for whose benefit? that's what ended up having with desegregation. the problem is the decisions were being made for the most part with a certain constituent tune si in mind and keeping dd constituency in explained keeping them happen and wasn't just they white middle class. we're trying to keep the black civil rights liberal who fought for desegregation happy, too, and there was that contingent in louisville fight for desegregation very
that will start generating more revenue for the government? i feel like it will just cause more problems for the economy and more spending to take care of more citizens. host: mary in mississippi, republican. caller: hi. i would just like to commend the 12-year-old boy that called. it's wonderful that he has an interest in politics and that he really is informed and trying to find out what is really going on in the country. i feel that is, as a republican, that is one of the problems with the democrats, they don't listen and they don't find out what is really going on. i think they voted because they thought it was cool to vote for obama. i would like to say to marco rubio that night when he's giving his rebuttal in spanish, that he encourages all the illegal aliens and even illegal aliens not to learn the english language. host: we saw a news story talking about how the senator plans to stop about other issues like education. are you looking forward to hear what else he has to say, as a republican? caller: yes, i am. i really think highly of him. i really liked him and what he stands fo
down on trickle-down government policies that have failed us. >> and the idea that more taxes and more government spending is the best way to help hard-working middle class taxpayers, that's an old idea that has failed every time it's been tried. >> to encourage growth by lowering tax rates while lowering deductions and closing loopholes. >> simplifying our tax code will also help the middle class because it will make it easier for small businesses to hire and grow. >> i just will not drink to any of that. i'm joined tonight by joy reid, managing editor of thegrio.com. you know, it's just amazing how a guy can go from the savior on the cover of "time" magazine to being made fun of everywhere. but let's talk about what was coming out of his mouth. >> yeah. >> romneyesque. >> and you know what? first of all, the drinking thing, hilarious. and unfortunately for him, it's all he is going to be known for a minute. >> well, somebody put the water there. is he ashamed of water? just go ahead and drink it. it's not a big deal. >> and it was the maintaining eye contact with the camera thing tha
. the house majority and their speaker, john boehner. >> we have seemed to have an obsession with government bookkeeping. this is a rigged game and it is the wrong game for us to play. >> as we look ahead to 2016, rubio and the jindals and christies of the world represent two different schools of thinking in terms of how to rebrand the party and how to fight obama. >>> well, it's valentine's day, but love is not in the air, for anyone here in washington. what's new about that? up next, more on the republican party, at odds with itself, messenger and messaging. plus, what do they think of the obama agenda. with all the love lost, is it time for a breakup? we talk to tennessee congressman, marsha blackburn, who says it's time to get rid of the grand old party. >>> but first, a look ahead, in today's politics planner, a lot of sequester hearings today. arne duncan on the hill, talking about that. secretary clinton getting an honor at the pentagon today. and of course, the president in atlanta, but he also does a google hangout. so get your head gear on. you're watching "the daily rundown," only
of citizenship, we're not teaching citizens, if we believe citizens are responsible for their own government, we par riel our own republic. we're in the low end of the funding scale because most of the budgetary priority goes to the other subjects. our textbooks are not very good to begin with. please do something because as much as we love the story telling in your american trilogy, we can't assign it to our kids, and most of our kids are getting their materials now on ipads. that sort of thing anyhow, and if there were material put in a form that we could use, we could bypass the whole textbook business, and we could engage our students, and we could have a great leap forward. i met a lot of these teachers, and it really occurred to me they were telling me the same thing for years. story telling is critical in race, but it has to be done in a way that's paletteble to the students, and we can't blame the students for not learning history. if we don't teach it to them, we can't blame them for not learning it. if i believe as i do, and i'll explain very briefly why i believe a sense of american h
and one reviews said they interpreted the book too much government is bad and intervention is the problem. >> guest: really? that is interesting. [laughter] >> host: it is reasonable to interpret that way maybe even a libertarian. this is what happens when government tinkers with engineering. they tried to make us equal in the end up hurting the people this is what happens when government gets in the way. [laughter] >> but the issue with that is who is running government and for whose benefit? but decisions are made for the most part with a constituency in mind and keeping them happy. there is just this try to keep the black civil rights happy to a and there is that contingent very intensely all these years so for what works i listen to people talk about and i have an answer i spend a lot of time in really good schools that seem to be working and there is always something that is problematic why it is working so well. it is a hard question to answer and to except school choice and diversities of this is something that charter schools became interested in here in new york city for example,
to have strong and responsive as your book says that they interpret your book saying too much government, the government intervention as the problem. but it's reasonable to interpret your book that i. mehdi libertarian this is what happens when the keep tinkering and engineering they make it desegregated and make us equal and we end up hurting the people we were trying to help that's what happens when the government gets in the way. >> guest: it's not necessarily -- i think the issue is who is running the government and for whose benefit and that will end up happening with desegregation. the problem is the decisions are being made with for the most part a sort of a constituency in mind and keeping them happy. that wasn't just the white middle class by the way. there's also we are trying to keep the black civil rights liberal class who filed for segregation and others definitely that contingent in louisville fighting for desegregation, very intensely all these years as well and so yeah but in terms of what works, you know, i listened to lots of people every day talking and i don't have an
